Henrik Stenson battles weather, holds 4-shot lead at Tour Championship

ATLANTA, Sept. 21 (UPI) -- Henrik Stenson battled foul weather to manage a 1-under 69 Saturday and retain a four-shot advantage after three rounds of the PGA Tour Championship.

The Swede had forged a nine-stroke lead earlier in the round but stumbled to three bogeys in the final five holes as the conditions worsened at East Lake, finishing at 11-under-par 199 -- four strokes ahead of Dustin Johnson, who carded a 3-under 67 to move into second place at 7-under.

Stenson has a chance to take both The Tour Championship and the FedExCup Playoffs with a victory -- he is currently second to Tiger Woods on FedEx points list.

Steve Stricker moved into sole possession of third place at 5-under with a third-round 2-under 68.

U.S. Open champion Justin Rose (70), Zach Johnson (69), Billy Horschel (70) and Jordan Spieth (71) were tied for fourth at 4-under.
